The Albany

Based in the heart of Deptford, the Albany is a performing arts centre with a history stretching back to the nineteenth century.

The Albany presents a huge range of events and participation opportunities each year, across artforms and for all ages and most tastes.

The Albany building has four performance spaces, including its unique central performance space, with a capacity of 300 seated and 500 for standing events. Other facilities include a café bar, rehearsal and meeting rooms, community garden, and office space for creative and community businesses.

On behalf of Lewisham Council, the Albany manages and programmes the Deptford Lounge, a cultural and community hub, which includes a library, galleries, and a range of community facilities shared with Tidemill School.

On behalf of Southwark Council, the Albany manages and programmes the Canada Water Theatre comprising a 150-seat theatre and six education and meeting spaces at Canada Water Library.

"The Albany is an amazing venue with an eclectic programme whose every beam and floor tile says 'community.'"
